Title: Darkness Visible.
Description: London, Faber and Faber. 1979, First Edition. (ISBN: 0751114547) Hard Cover with dust jacket. Ill.: Russell Drysdale, dust jacket illustration. 265 pp, 8vo (8" H). "Matty appears out of the flaming destruction of the Blitz. Who is he? Is he more or less than an ordinary human? Is the journal he keeps madness or inspiration? The twins are young enough to be his daughters: Sophy - dark, amoral, cruel; and Toni - fair, brilliant, empty. Their generation inhabits a world of cold terror, a world running down, a world where love is dying. Yet Matty and Toni never meet, and Matty and Sophy for no more than a moment. There are others too, like Sebastian Pedigree, thought by some to the the wickedest of men - William Golding has written a story of our times, a chilling mystery which never ceases to mystify. The master of disturbing suggestion, he stirs up the sediment of dark thoughts and half-ideas within us all; but for the reader as well as the characters, the reality of inarticulate fear emerges more clearly than ever." Pages browning very lightly. Dust jacket has minor edge wrinkling, tiny spot of discoloration on rear panel. Very Good/Very Good.
